Well someone isn't shy. And the Doctor seems to know more about some things than I thought she might. :-D Skeletons in her closet?
Centcomm 6th Aug 2013, 7:18 PM edit delete reply

remember Silver has been around a bit too.. and shes very well read.. :D
Sheela 7th Aug 2013, 3:09 AM edit delete reply

Not to mention that Dr. Silver is quite a bit older than she looks - She's had time to pick up a lot of information.

I wouldn't be surprised if Ada knew she was a joygirl too, and was simply trying to pick her up.
highlander55 6th Aug 2013, 6:07 PM edit delete reply

She looks good in that stripped outfit. Ada wearing Google Glasses too- LOL! And who is walking in with the red top and white sneakers? Another player in this little drama no doubt. And I have heard some asked if theirs was gold plated.
Aurelia- means either golden, jelly fish or from Iowa.
Centcomm 6th Aug 2013, 7:21 PM edit delete reply

it means Golden. ( her name )guess we will find out whos walking in :D

as for Ada's display its a combo libary, sensor cluster. ( you could also think of it as a wareable tri-corder )
Barreytor 6th Aug 2013, 10:14 PM edit delete reply

Ada's display looks more like a scouter from Dragon Ball to me. It's funny.
cattservant 6th Aug 2013, 6:17 PM edit delete reply

And from Nova Roma too...
highlander55 6th Aug 2013, 6:27 PM edit delete reply

Ha Ha,, Just noticed the back-lit chalk board in panel 3. Probably drink specials just like we have today. Last panel- what the hell is that floating orb by Aurelia? Her personal ATM?
cattservant 6th Aug 2013, 6:39 PM edit delete reply

That's one of Dr. Silver's Special Security Spheres.
Centcomm 6th Aug 2013, 7:22 PM edit delete reply

as Catt said its one of Silvers "ORB drones" they come in various sizes and functions.
Sheela 7th Aug 2013, 3:11 AM edit delete reply

Well, you can't play dart/billard without a chalkboard to keep the score. After all, getting the score wrong is half the game. :)

And i wonder - Just how dangerous are those Orbs ?
Centcomm 7th Aug 2013, 8:32 PM edit delete reply

it depends on the type. she has several. this one? lets wait and see :D
highlander55 6th Aug 2013, 6:46 PM edit delete reply

My take on this- Aurelia is a field agent to check out strangers heading into Roma. A 'Relaxation' session would allow her to know Ada's physical build and density by hand-on contact during her session. Need to know who is human and who is android especially in their type of society.
Stormwind13 6th Aug 2013, 7:19 PM edit delete reply

That is an interesting possibility, highlander.

I think she is a spy/informer and getting people in bed is one way of getting them to reveal things. Proven, over and over again.
Centcomm 6th Aug 2013, 7:22 PM edit delete reply

thats a intresting take... :D
highlander55 6th Aug 2013, 7:24 PM edit delete reply
Marta Hari All I'm sayin.
Sheela 7th Aug 2013, 3:13 AM edit delete reply

That is certainly a possibility ... offcourse, she could also be a spy for a certain Ranger, hmm ?
ranger_brianna_new 7th Aug 2013, 8:26 PM edit delete reply

Why would I need spies? :P
Centcomm 7th Aug 2013, 8:31 PM edit delete reply

hahah - good one :D
Stormwind13 6th Aug 2013, 6:52 PM edit delete reply

Aurelia was the first name of Julius Caesar's mother. Wonder if there is a link between the current ruler of Nova Roma and her presence here.

I have to say though, damn, she looks pretty good for being that old. :-D
Centcomm 6th Aug 2013, 7:26 PM edit delete reply

I didnt give her the name because of that :D I actually picked it at random. >_<
VanEzzania 6th Aug 2013, 7:04 PM edit delete reply

Lezbean robots :3
Centcomm 6th Aug 2013, 7:26 PM edit delete reply

wheee! sounds like fun times :D
Sheela 7th Aug 2013, 3:14 AM edit delete reply

Definately fun times.

I wonder though, do android pleasure bots have adnroid specific STD's ?
Centcomm 7th Aug 2013, 9:01 AM edit delete reply

Nothing andriod spicific. and some cant even take hold due to there bio chemisty they are mostly biologicly nutral. without proper hygine they can act as carryers. but they wont be normally affected by the disease.
Sheela 7th Aug 2013, 3:40 PM edit delete reply

I'm kinda surprise that some viruses haven't specialized in android tissue.

Ah well, good for the androids. :)
Rashala 6th Aug 2013, 7:50 PM edit delete reply

waits for the next frame with a Flying blur.....that is the idiot at the bar achieving low altitude orbit*

Don not think I would want one that was gold plated. Hey, whatever makes ya happy...
Centcomm 6th Aug 2013, 9:25 PM edit delete reply

hehe- wait till you see the next page :D
highlander55 7th Aug 2013, 4:31 AM edit delete reply
Maybe that is not only her money business but her bank vault too! Talk about a woman being heavy in the hips! Sheesh! (Don't forget the silver tongue!)
CyberSkull 7th Aug 2013, 1:11 AM edit delete reply

Aurelia hmm? So it's not gold-plated, but solid gold (well, organic-gold alloy)?
mjkj 7th Aug 2013, 1:20 AM edit delete reply

Hmm, the golden one if I remember correctly - nice name :)

I wonder what she is up to ... is she a spy for rome? (she has the right profession for that though...)
JustNoPoint 7th Aug 2013, 5:21 AM edit delete reply

Would she have found her more approachable if she said, "No, this one's a freebie?" :P
Sheela 7th Aug 2013, 5:41 AM edit delete reply


Neither Ada nor Dr Silver seem to be in need of money as such.
Centcomm 7th Aug 2013, 8:49 AM edit delete reply

Dr silver has more money than she knows what to do with. and Ada is a highly paid rescue worker. between her "hazard pay" and her salary she makes quite a bit of credits.
cattservant 7th Aug 2013, 9:19 AM edit delete reply

Besides, some things need to be paid for just to keep the boundaries well defined.
highlander55 7th Aug 2013, 10:19 AM edit delete reply
Or at least an expensive dinner.
cattservant 7th Aug 2013, 10:31 AM edit delete reply

Something of mutually agreed on value at any rate.
highlander55 7th Aug 2013, 10:55 AM edit delete reply
Only issue could be deciding on what both sides consider a fair value.
cattservant 7th Aug 2013, 10:56 AM edit delete reply

Hands on negotiation of the rules of engagement...
highlander55 7th Aug 2013, 11:23 AM edit delete reply
Would that be considered a perk or theft of services?
cattservant 7th Aug 2013, 11:33 AM edit delete reply

This sort of thing is exactly why societies tend to limit the rate at which their culture changes values over time.

Can't dance if you don't know the steps!

Draginbeard 7th Aug 2013, 11:36 AM edit delete reply

She is a little bit intrusive, her pitch seems too forward to land her business with serious minded folk. Hell, anyone even slightly paranoid is going to avoid her like a dose.

Effective espionage requires basic subtly, and this one could easily be the poster child for 'wake-up-in-your-hotel-room-drugged-and-robbed.
Marcus Ramesy 7th Aug 2013, 12:06 PM edit delete reply

this is in a sosciety where joy girls are a legit and quite profitable business venture..
cattservant 7th Aug 2013, 12:15 PM edit delete reply

Well it is "a slow business day" at The Lucky Strike. Joygirl's gotta hustle!
Draginbeard 7th Aug 2013, 12:20 PM edit delete reply

Sounds like Las Vegas, or Atlantic City. Hell, any big city, in any point in history for that matter. Honestly, in many places, legal is a guideline at best.

But no matter where, or when, you pick your date with caution, or roll your fate with the dice loaded against you.

Centcomm 7th Aug 2013, 12:28 PM edit delete reply

a lot of prostitues are very forward with the potentioal customers. also senses its a legal profession shes probably screened and licenced. *winks*
Draginbeard 7th Aug 2013, 12:38 PM edit delete reply

Not debating that, I was more talking about someone in a covert line of business.

There was talk of her looking to social engineer some secrets out of people.

In my opinion, she is too obvious to be all that effective on the trained and paranoid (which describes most of our heroes here).

Basically, I'm saying that I believe she is exactly what she appears to be. For sale.

That doesn't mean she isn't dangerous, just that she is a trap easily avoided.

Centcomm 7th Aug 2013, 12:57 PM edit delete reply

and that is right on the money :D
( shes actually harmless - ill break my no spoiler rule here ) shes just what she appears.
highlander55 7th Aug 2013, 3:11 PM edit delete reply
Yea, Under dressed and overpaid?
velvetsanity 7th Aug 2013, 3:34 PM edit delete reply

Sounds like most prostitutes to me :D
Sheela 7th Aug 2013, 3:42 PM edit delete reply

I'm guessing that prostitution is somewhat less tabu in the future, and might even be more accepted, especially by the android population ?
Centcomm 7th Aug 2013, 3:58 PM edit delete reply

prostitution is totally legal in most city states - and small towns - rather than outlaw it they just made it safe. :D although in new troy The profession is all andriod. Humans are not allowed to engage in prostitution in any form. :P
highlander55 7th Aug 2013, 4:11 PM edit delete reply
So they still have job discrimination in their time. Figures!
Stormwind13 7th Aug 2013, 4:20 PM edit delete reply

We are going to have to take away your EVIL badge if you keep this up. I mean, I figured she HAD to be a spy of some kind, since evil author introduced her! :-D
Stormwind13 7th Aug 2013, 6:35 PM edit delete reply

Only problem I have with that, Draginbeard, is that they have to be flashy/forward enough to catch ATTENTION. They can't get close to prospective targets by being wallflowers.

Mata Hari was a Dutch exotic dancer (fancy way of saying STRIPPER), courtesan and considered one of the best spies around. She was noted for being VERY bold.

Then there were people like Nancy Wake who once had a 5 MILLION Franc price on her head because she was so effective. She said one of her tactics was "A little powder and a little drink on the way, and I'd pass their (German) posts and wink and say, 'Do you want to search me?' God, what a flirtatious little bastard I was."

There are other examples I can find, but most of the ladies that were spies were uncommonly bold for their era.

Most people are more leery of those furtively moving around then those that are walking boldly down the middle of the street. Not saying that would work with all the members of the team, but with Ada and her love of people it might have been doable.
Centcomm 7th Aug 2013, 6:56 PM edit delete reply

oh she would have suckered her in a second. Ada is way too trusting. Silver wouldnt trust anyone out here.
Stormwind13 7th Aug 2013, 7:23 PM edit delete reply

Dr. Silver depends on Dr. Silver... Ada has... TEEDEE to look after her! There was a reason they were partnered (lots of them I expect). :-)
Mark_L_A 14th May 2015, 8:52 PM edit delete reply

Ok, how many pairs of shoes does Connie have? She was wearing red, looked like converse with the purple plaid shirt earlier, now these look like white air jordans. At least the do to me.

Also has anyone made the connection between Ada's outfit and a certain dashing Corellian Nerfherder??
Centcomm 14th May 2015, 9:50 PM edit delete reply

She has several pairs of shoes :D

HAH i didnt even think of that comparison :D
Steven-Vincent 12th Oct 2015, 1:03 PM edit delete reply

"What, is yours gold-plated?" Priceless. I love the dialogue here.
